Per a report by classfmonline.com, they also received the report of auditors as well as the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2020.
The 33% increase in profit was recognised as the biggest in Ghana at the moment.
According to the board chairman, Edward Effah, the bank performed well despite the uncertainties that rocked the financial services industry in the country.
He added that the bank’s balance sheet “remains one of the largest and strongest in the country, as we closed the year with a balance sheet size of GHS10.48 billion, up from the 2018 asset balance of GHS7.02 billion.”
In other news, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC), Yoofi Grant, has called for a common African currency.
According to him, the use of different currencies on the continent is a huge barrier as it complicates trading activities.
In his opinion, it should be possible to easily trade in Nigeria without switching currencies.
